Trader Joe’s Haul

During graduate school the only place I grocery shopped was at Trader Joe’s– it is where I got EVERYTHING. Vegetables, pre packaged food (I lived on their burritos and enchiladas), muffins, granola, everything. And yet since then, I rarely go as there is not one close by and I like things where I pick the quantity myself. That said, I was reintroduced to Trader Joe’s and it inspired me to try it again. I have gone twice in the past two weeks and I love it — not for everyday grocery shopping, but for random snacks and food to hoard in my house (I hoard food).


Huge bag of goodies — and SO inexpensive — less than 50 dollars!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!

My frozen section — the kids love these dumplings and bao — they taste even better than Chinese takeout!

The dessert section — mini peanut butter cups, chocolate covered pretzels, and lava cakes. What is not to love here???

Snacks galore! Nuts, chips, peas. Crunchy, salty and delicious.

Two totally random items. Avocado spray and parmesan flakes.

I opened these and they were beyond delicious and wish I had bought four more bags of them. They are the perfect combination of sweet and salty and with the right crunch.


If you go to Trader Joe’s — what do I need to pick up next time on my weekly run? I love all recommendations! Thank you!

  1. It’s not my go-to grocery and I don’t love their produce, but some great things! Pizza dough, shelled edamame, balsamic vinegar, peach salsa, green chili salsa, tzatziki, mini dog treats, frozen garlic and ginger cubes, letter cookies, greeting cards and flowers, all nuts, and Koda’s favorite=gorgonzola gnocchi! (but they’re having supply chain issues and it’s been unavailable)
